About Us

This web site was encouraged and blessed by Master Shen-Ming, the 45th Patriarch of Chinese Tien Tai School and former President of the Buddhist Association of the United States, in September of 1999. The Master approved the earlier infrastructure of the site especially in the area of Chinese Buddhism. In early February of 2000, we are grateful to have Geshe Thubten Jinpa, a principal English translator to H.H. the Dalai Lama, as the advisor of the site. Geshe has contributed the framework of the Tibetan Buddhism in the Schools and Teachings section and provided lots of positive and valuable information toward the completeness of the Tibetan Dharma Teaching.

The Dharma Centers is intended to provide references to real physical centers, monasteries, temples, Buddhism study groups, and Buddhist related foundations. It is easy for you to add a new URL entry to Manjushri for as easy as one table entry from Submit Your Site. We also offer Buddhist related daily news in the News section.

The Schools and Teachings provides a systematic foundation to capture a general view of Buddhism based on different philosophical doctrine systems. Just like posting your site on the Virtual library, you can choose to enter the link yourself or send us your materials in HTML format by email.

The Virtual library under the Schools and Teachings offers a "life" information site for you to access and grow your collections. All the collections are grouped based on the geographical regions and different practice techniques. We encourage you to either link your favorite documents to Manjushri or send us the HTML documents by email and we will be more than happy to post them on the library.

Manjushri's Cosmos is created for individuals or companies who desire a web presence to promote their ideas, interest, or business. There are currently eighteen categories in service, further expansion will be conducted when needed.

Bodhisattva: is the being who takes on the suffering of all sentient beings, who undertakes the journey to liberation not for his or her own good alone but to help all others, and who eventually, after attaining liberation, does not dissolve into the absolute or flee the agony of samsara, but chooses to return again and again to devote his or her wisdom and compassion to the service of the whole world" --- from The Tibetan Book Of Living And Dying, Sogyal Rinpoche, page 364.

Prajnaparamita: This collection of religious Buddhist texts, among the oldest of the canon of Mahayana tradition, was reunited in the 1st century BC in India. It is centered on the discussion of the concept of voidness.
